catfishcorner's Shop Announcement

Ceramic wall tile , pins , small dishes, and ornaments are designed and created in my shop in Salem , Oregon . I work with low fire clay and cone 6 stoneware and porcelain clays . Each piece is unique, hand made by me with care .

The porcelain clay is slab rolled, cut out and textured with found objects or stamps I have bought, made or re-purposed from wood, plaster, plastic, and clay . After drying the items are bisque fired and then glaze fired to 2232 degrees F ( cone 6) .
The low fire clay is slab rolled and cut out with handmade cutters. Details are stamped in or added with colored clay . Items are bisque fired and glazed with bright commercial glazes and under glazes and fired to 1945 degrees F (cone 04 ) .
Some pins, ornaments, earrings and magnets are press molded from original plaster molds I make . Each is glazed, fired, and finished with quality findings .
The little cat dishes are pinch formed from colored porcelain and have a clear food- safe cone 6 glaze .
I have played in the clay for 30 years so I'm always designing new items.
My exploration this year is porcelain pins .

Pieces are well wrapped in recycled materials for shipping . A business card or information card may be included . I ship as soon as I am able but I do many shows during the summer season and it sometimes causes a delay .
A list of art and craft shows I do may be found on my website www.catfishcorner.com .
